Lyrics  How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G G7)
 How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G C7)

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were (G Em D C7)
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
 and there you were (G Em D C7)
With sweet love and devotion
 deeply touching my emotion (G C7 G C7)
I want to stop and thank you baby (G C7)
I just want to stop and thank you baby (G)

 How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G G7)
 How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G C7)

I close my eyes at night,
 wondering where would I be without you in my life (G Em D C7)
Everything I did was just a bore,
 everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before (G Em D C7)
But you brightened up for me all of my days
 With a love so sweet in so many ways (G C7 G C7)
I want to stop and thank you baby (G C7)
I want to stop and thank you baby (G)

 How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G G7)
 How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G C7)

You were better for me than I was for myself (G C7)
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else (G C7)
I want to stop and thank you baby (G C7)
I just want to stop and thank you baby (G)

How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G G7)
How sweet it is to be loved by you (C Am D7 G C7)
